(21:19:00) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Walks back towards T'Lira and Taril :: SCI: Looks like we have plans this evening
(21:19:23) Adm_ACZuriyev: :: climbs on board a float ::
(21:19:27) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: tips her head ever so slightly to the side :: MED: What do you mean?
(21:20:48) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: Admiral Zuriyev is retiering and where as our presesnce is not mandatory it is encouraged. In our current state with Admiral Blackthorne i think we should look dapper and be there with bells on
(21:21:22) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: As you put it like that, I would most certainly agree. But I do not see the necessity of bells. Most beings tend to find them annoying.
(21:21:38) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: :: having traveled to the parade with the Zuriyevs, he offers them an encouraging smile as they board the float ::
(21:21:57) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Has managed to attend the engagement from his Antarctic excursion. Was very generously given a polished oak walking stick by Mr Humperdinck at the bar before he left, that had been left there many years prior. Was proudly strolling down the street in his Mess Dress Uniform, looking sharp.::
(21:22:12) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: Thats a figure of speech it just means be there with a smile
(21:22:37) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: Ah. I see. In that case, I will have to request that you do most of the smiling.
(21:22:47) Cdor_BrookeZuriyev: :: follows her husband up onto the float, smiling widely ::
(21:23:03) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI:As always my dear, I will smile as long as youre around
(21:23:29) SCI_LtJG_TLira: Taril> :: looks back and forth between them :: MED/SCI: That's right! I've got a rematch with Sorrel tonight! She promised to teach me some of the cool tricks she used!
(21:24:08) MED_Ens_DrSlade: Taril: We will come and get you as soon as the party is over and you can stay with us tonight, if you would like that!
(21:24:27) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: Alexi/Brooke: Break a leg, and see you at the party.
(21:24:34) SCI_LtJG_TLira: Taril> :: eyes widen :: MED: Really? That would be so cool!
(21:24:59) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: stands next to Blackthorne, somewhat on edge with the elevated volume of celebration, and surreptitiously pops in earplugs ::
(21:25:12) MED_Ens_DrSlade: Taril: You beat sorrel and we will get lasagna tomorrow for dinner
(21:25:36) Adm_ACZuriyev: Ian: Yes, you know I hate this kind of attention. I will survive it.
(21:25:38) SCI_LtJG_TLira: Taril> :: giggles :: MED: I don't think I can beat her, but I'll try!
(21:25:52) Cdor_BrookeZuriyev: :: winks at Blackthorne :: CO: I'll break two for the both of us.
(21:26:08) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: Brooke: Good thing you're a doctor.
(21:26:08) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: You have to believe in yourself bud
(21:26:18) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: I believe we should get ready now. Taril: We will see you later. Be good for Shari.
(21:26:49) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: resents Mess Dress and despises whoever designed such torture, and doesn't understand how it is any more or less fancy than his normal uniform. But whatever. With a final look in the mirror, he steps out of his ex girlfriend's apartment, walks over to the vintage PCC streetcar stop and sees the next vehicle rattling down the rails toward him and Embarcadero. ::
(21:26:57) Cdor_BrookeZuriyev: :: laughs ::
(21:27:03) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: Agreed, its a Mess Dress event
(21:27:32) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: As could be expected of such an occasion ::
(21:27:54) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Looking around for any of his fellow crewmembers. Has managed to bump into 3 retired Admirals that he had acquaintance with in the past; they were hoverchair bound, old and withered by time, yet still with a smile on their faces at the display. Taps his stick, reminding himself that he can still walk. Hums to himself as he trots on.::
(21:28:56) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: :: waves and smiles again, then turns toward the VIP viewing area ::
(21:29:23) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: After leaving Taril makes a quick change in to mess dress but finds the neck to be difficult::
(21:30:07) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: secretly finds mess dress to be one of the most awkward things she's ever had to wear, but keeps that a secret ::
(21:30:12) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: Self: They're minds have undoubtedly failed those old sod... ::Laughs.:: Not today... ::Scans the crowd looking for anyone.::
(21:30:34) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: T'Lira could you help me with this top button
(21:31:08) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: lifts an eyebrow and steps over to help :: MED: I believe that the common complaint is "the neck is too tight"?
(21:31:18) Adm_ACZuriyev: :: Picard maneuvers his uniform tunic, and exhales sharply, like he's steeling himself to go to his execution ::
(21:31:37) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: Are you trying to say something darling?
(21:32:21) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: No. Merely that it is a common complaint and may be the reason you needed assistance. I do not see what else could be said.
(21:32:27) Cdor_BrookeZuriyev: :: puts a reassuring hand to Zuriyev's back ::
(21:33:18) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Chuckles as she helps, when she finishes plants a soft kiss on her lips:: SCI: We should hurry so we dont miss the parade!!
(21:33:35) Adm_ACZuriyev: Brooke: This all seems surreal.
(21:33:51) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: hides that blush really well... at least she thinks she does :: MED: I agree.
(21:33:58) Cdor_BrookeZuriyev: Alexi: I know what you mean.
(21:34:10) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Notices the blush::
(21:34:23) Adm_ACZuriyev: Brooke: I suppose that I am to take up fishing now, da?
(21:34:37) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: They make there way to a shuttle and have a quick trip to the parade grounds::
(21:34:55) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Keeps humming to himself, as his footsteps and cane create a beat.::
(21:35:06) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: steps off the PCC at the Embarcadero station and sees a staged parade by Pier 30. This must be the place. He pulls at the neck of his friggin' mess dress and walks over. Egad, he's already sweating. This is horrible. He doesn't know anyone on the crew or this admiral, but he's been encouraged to go along. So he steps up on the parade float and finds the closest thing he can to being hidden just in time for departure. ::
(21:35:21) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: :: enters the VIP viewing area with T'Kirr and finds a good spot ::
(21:35:41) Cdor_BrookeZuriyev: Alexi: ::wryly:: Only if you go diving for them.
(21:36:01) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: MAGIC EDIT: into the viewing area where other Atlantis officers are staging ::
(21:36:14) Adm_ACZuriyev: Brooke: It is more sporting that way. :: laughs slightly ::
(21:36:44) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: ACTION> The parade begins with a marching band leading the way!
(21:36:48) MED_Ens_DrSlade: ::Sees Wolfe and grabs T'lira's hand to walk over:: CTO: Major, how are you this evening?
(21:36:55) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: unaware of the goings on in San Francisco, sits back in the booth and pushes the plate away from her :: Kate: That was delicious, but I don't think I can eat another bite. Not if you expect me to get back on that motorcycle, anyway. You'd have to roll me out the door.
(21:37:18) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: follows along, vaguely recognizing the major from the mission ::
(21:37:26) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: grins :: Lexy: Well, if you roll, I could tow you.
(21:37:27) Cdor_BrookeZuriyev: :: puts on a wider smile and begins princess-waving ::
(21:38:04) Adm_ACZuriyev: :: notices the float start to move ::: Here we go...
(21:38:28) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: laughs :: Kate: That would be a sight! How about you? Are you satisfied?
(21:39:09) CAG_Cdr_Harper: Lexy: Of course, there was bacon on that burger.
(21:39:15) XO_Capt_TKirr: SEC_Lt_Kuari> :: exitedly stretching upwards and looking over heads at the parade ::
(21:39:45) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Kate: Very important to replenish your bacon levels. :: solemn nod ::
(21:40:18) CAG_Cdr_Harper: Lexy: Imperative, even.
(21:40:47) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: ACTION> Following the marching band, the Zuriyev float appears.
(21:40:57) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Still strolling along like the crazy old coot he is, still very much trying to find someone in the crowd.
(21:41:00) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::
(21:41:06) Adm_ACZuriyev: :: begins to wave to the crowd, wearing a mostly-fake smile ::
(21:42:20) Cdor_BrookeZuriyev: :: thinks to herself that neither of them have to do a thing but smile and wave, so she might as well distract herself with looking around at the people and attempt to remember the event ::
(21:43:10) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: ACTION> Following the Zuriyevs comes a float with President Yix on board, looking dapper with a certain cane in his possession.
(21:43:14) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Kate: Oh, certainly. :: sucks the last of her strawberry malt through a straw :: Kate: So, what's next?
(21:44:37) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: sizes up Doctor... Slater, is it? and the Vulcan woman with him whom he's never met before. Ugh. People talking to him. He quickly realizes he'd better seem friendly or he'll be in trouble, and adopts a small, seemingly sincere smile :: MED & SCI:Hello, Doctor. Lieutenant. :: sighs :: I'm fine, and you?
(21:44:40) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::A twinkle in the old man's eye, as he is drawn to his cane in the crowd... in the hands of the President. Taps his stick.:: Self: Well this is a new one...
(21:44:51) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: keeps her eyes riveted to the Zuriyevs, paying special attention to Brooke ::
(21:44:53) CAG_Cdr_Harper: Lexy: Keep heading south, if you would like to? We might be able to make it to Big Sur today.
(21:45:23) Adm_ACZuriyev: :: quietly :: I suppose this is not so terrible. They are probably looking at the President now.
(21:45:52) MED_Ens_DrSlade: CTO: We are here Sir and thats just about all i can say really. :: Smalls::
(21:46:14) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: nods :: Kate: That sounds like fun! Shall we, then? :: pops up and grabs her helmet, tucking it under her arm ::
(21:46:20) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: :: leans to T'Kirr and whispers :: I don't care if I single-handedly defeat all of the Borg, never let them do this for me.
(21:46:32) Cdor_BrookeZuriyev: Alexi: Undoubtedly. That was faster than our wedding.
(21:46:46) SCI_LtJG_TLira: CTO: Hello, Major. I believe that we are all doing fine, yes? :: double checks the long-running mental book of various terms with double meanings and finds it acceptable ::
(21:47:04) Adm_ACZuriyev: :: laughs ::
(21:47:10) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: perks an eyebrow at Blackthorne ::
(21:47:31) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: stands up and stretches, then grabs her helmet :: Lexy: We shall!
(21:47:34) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: receives a slight shove from and looks to see an obviously excited... Actually he's not sure what it is next to him. It's green, has a large horn on the back of its head, and obviously it's a Starfleet officer, as it's wearing a custom built mess dress, complete with... are those holes for wings? The being is craning its neck, though it doesn't need to do so as it's plenty tall to see over even his very tall head with ease. St
(21:47:35) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: turns back to Slade :: MED: I hear ya, Doctor. I hear ya.
(21:47:38) XO_Capt_TKirr: CO: Is this...terrible?
(21:47:57) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Follows the parade, eyeing up the Yix float. Moving much faster than he had been recently.::
(21:48:13) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: XO: Yes, it'd be awful down there.
(21:49:21) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: regards the Lieutenant and the connection between her and the doctor :: SCI: I am... pleased to hear that.
(21:49:50) Adm_ACZuriyev: :: still waving and smiling as fresh faces haven't seen the President yet ::
(21:50:16) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: (FROM THE DESCRIPTION OF THE BEING NEXT TO HIM, WHAT WAS CUT OUT) :: Still, it's obviously excited. ::
(21:50:35) XO_Capt_TKirr: SEC_Lt_Kuari> :: doesn't notice she's bumped Wolfe ::
(21:52:01) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: ACTION> After the Yix float is a holographic display of all of Zuriyev's commands, proceeding from the Halsey, to the Atlantis, to a representation of Third Fleet, and on to the Alpha Quadrant.
(21:52:10) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :Notices Kuari and her tail has bumped Wolfe:: SEC: Lieutenant Kuari, lovely to see you. I believe you have lost control of your tail again :: Smiles::
(21:52:44) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: wonders how she didn't see Kuari standing there :: SEC: Hello, Lieutenant. I take it you are enjoying yourself?
(21:53:13) XO_Capt_TKirr: CO: Ah, that would be Atlantis. :: indicates the hologram ::
(21:53:20) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: smiling, takes Kate's free hand in hers and exits the diner, with thanks and a parting wave to the waitress ::
(21:53:46) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: XO: Indeed.
(21:54:00) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: adjusts her leathers and climbs on the bike, then puts her helmet on ::
(21:54:37) XO_Capt_TKirr: SEC_Lt_Kuari> :: looks behind her at Slade, then at Wolfe :: Ah, sorry about that. Hello, Doctor Slade.
(21:54:57) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: ACTION> A second marching band brings up the rear of the parade.
(21:55:51) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: pulls her helmet on as well, checking the helmet comms before hopping on the bike and positioning herself behind Kate, holding on around Kate's midsection to signal that she's ready to go ::
(21:56:03) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: ACTION> The lead band was the Starfleet Marching Band, the tailing one was the Starfleet Marine Corps Marching Band, to clarify.
(21:56:22) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: starts the old machine and pulls out onto the carefully maintained highway ::
(21:56:27) XO_Capt_TKirr: SEC_Lt_Kuari> :: checks Wolfe's pips :: CTO: Hello. Major? I don't think we've met.
(21:56:42) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Practically strafes past the Doctor, Wolfe, T'Lira and Kurari on his quest up the street with the parade.::
(21:57:13) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: notices a certain Andorian :: ENG: Greetings, Lieutenant Ilaihr. I see you have found another cane.
(21:57:23) Adm_ACZuriyev: :: sees Pier 39 ahead :: Brooke: Almost over...
(21:57:39) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SEC/CTO: Lieutenant Kuari Security Officer this is Major Wolfe our new Cheif Tactical Officer
(21:57:45) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Calls back:: SCI: I have found the other one as well!
(21:57:51) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: shifts her body weight with a now-practiced lean, allowing for nice smooth turns. ::
(21:57:59) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: lifts an eyebrow and wonders what he meant ::
(21:58:23) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: doesn't drive too fast, given that the view is wonderful on this road ::
(21:58:59) Cdor_BrookeZuriyev: :: takes in a deep breath, summoning strength for the finish ::
(21:59:09) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Making sure there is a proper introduction between the two officers::
(21:59:11) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: looks out at the sun glinting off of the Pacific waves as they ride past ::
(21:59:33) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: glances at the Monterey Bay with a smile on her face ::
(21:59:47) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: XO: Looks like it's about over. Shall we make our way to the party?
(22:00:00) XO_Capt_TKirr: CO: All right.
(22:00:13) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: stands listening to the beauty that is music from the Starfleet Marine Corps Marching Band for a moment before turning to greet this person next to him :: SEC: Hello, Lieutenant. :: Does not hold out his hand to shake. It's really not his thing ::
(22:00:24) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *Kate* Do you have a destination in mind for tonight?
(22:00:50) CAG_Cdr_Harper: *Lexy* There should still be several nice bed and breakfasts in Big Sur.
(22:01:02) XO_Capt_TKirr: SEC_Lt_Kuari> CTO: Oh! Yes, I read the report. A pleasure to meet you, sir. :: attempts to get smaller, but she doesn't have much room in the crowd to get wider ::
(22:01:19) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *Kate* Oooh, a bed and breakfast. I've never stayed in one before.
(22:01:35) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: ACTION> The parade makes it to Pier 39 and the bands quiet down. An announcement goes out regarding the party and its imminent start.
(22:08:12) CAG_Cdr_Harper: *Lexy* I do not think I have either, but I recall noticing them when I used to ride here.
(22:08:14) Adm_ACZuriyev: :: as the float stops, he waits for Brooke ::
(22:08:35) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: ah, a party. The epitome of social events and the utter fear of anyone even remotely socially awkward ::
(22:08:49) MED_Ens_DrSlade: ALL: I guess we should make our way to peir 39 for the rest of the celebration, we should atleast make sure Admiral Blackthorne and Captain T'Kirr see us mingling
(22:08:55) MED_Ens_DrSlade: ALL: You never know, it is a big thing. Maybe they will have real booze and not synthehol
(22:09:12) Cdor_Brooke_Dolan: :: takes Alexi's hand and hops down off the float ::
(22:09:32) Adm_ACZuriyev: :: follows his wife down, glad to be off that thing ::
(22:09:45) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: I do not recommend real alcohol, as I do not believe I know how to drive. :: was that an acceptable joke? Such a difficult thing to comprehend, these jokes ::
(22:10:05) [1]CSO_LCdr_Wright: *Kate* :: laughs :: So you don't know anything about them, but decided to stay in one?
(22:10:30) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Laughs out loud:: SCI: Was that a joke T'Lira?
(22:10:47) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: It was an attempt... was it passable?
(22:11:26) CAG_Cdr_Harper: *Lexy* I looked them up, silly. :: snickers ::
(22:11:40) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: quite humerous but I think that anyone you said it to would need to know you
(22:11:56) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *Kate* Oh! Well, I didn't... what did you find out about them?
(22:12:14) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: I see. I must work on that. The concept of humor is far more complicated than I originally thought
(22:12:36) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: ACTION> The President disappears with his security detail after the parade, not attending the party.
(22:12:42) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Pulls out a small PADD from his pocket, and leaves a note. "Cane with Yix. Find IL.:: Self: I'll will get it back... ::Continues on to the party.::
(22:12:46) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: Youre a natural my dear
(22:13:18) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: If that it what barely passable attempts at humor are currently called, I will accept it.
(22:13:24) CAG_Cdr_Harper: *Lexy* It is like staying at someone's home instead of a hotel. Small, more personal, usually in a large house.
(22:14:11) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *Kate* Oh, that sounds... interesting.
(22:14:11) Adm_ACZuriyev: :: makes his way down the pier toward the festivities ::
(22:15:30) MED_Ens_DrSlade: ::Walks with the group down to peir 39 where the party is, sees Admiral and starts walking towards him::
(22:15:41) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: :: also heads down the pier ::
(22:18:00) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: wonders to herself if that means they will have to spend time interacting with strangers instead of being alone together, but doesn't say anything ::
(22:18:17) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: :: he and T'Kirr join up with the Zuriyevs as they enter the party area ::
(22:18:54) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: Alexi: Congratulations on surviving that.
(22:19:18) Adm_ACZuriyev: Ian: Thank you. I think I would rather have rather fought the Borg.
(22:19:38) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: catches her mind wandering toward brooding over how things might change when they return to duty, and forcibly wrenches herself back into the present moment ::
(22:20:21) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: takes a nice long curve that leans them over quite a ways ::
(22:20:56) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Still trotting like a man on a mission. But deferring his sudden contempt of the President. How did it get in his hands? What would he want with it? Did he even realise what was in it? Ilaihr was annoyed to say the least, as he came up to the pier.::
(22:21:02) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: Alexi: Can't say that I blame you there.
(22:21:17) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: realizes that her body is just doing what it's supposed to even when she's not fully paying attention, a good thing ::
(22:21:31) MED_Ens_DrSlade: ::Walks up to where the Admirals are standing with T'Lira and says:: CO/Adm: Admiral Zuriyev congratulations sir on quite an impressive career sir. Youre and inspiration to us all
(22:22:28) Adm_ACZuriyev: MED: Thank you Ensign. It is good to see the next generation of officers so eager.
(22:23:02) Cdor_BrookeZuriyev: :: smiles politely to Slade ::
(22:23:12) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Walks into the party. Composes himself, straightening up, and looking around the room.::
(22:23:23) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: :: looks around for the bar ::
(22:23:27) MED_Ens_DrSlade: Adm: Thank you Sir CO: Admiral Blackthorne begging your pardon may i ask you one question in private Sir?
(22:23:36) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: wonders just what would be appropriate to say here. Nothing currently comes to mind. A polite nod will have to do ::
(22:23:55) MED_Ens_DrSlade: ::Smiles and nods to the Admirals wife::
(22:24:29) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Decides to himself give his blessings to the departing admiral, and trots over to him confidently.::
(22:24:31) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: MED: Not now, Doc, it's a party. Save it for when we get back.
(22:25:05) MED_Ens_DrSlade: CO: I do understand Sir, but it has something to do with the party. It will only take a moment sir
(22:25:20) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Gives a partially pleading look::
(22:25:41) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: MED: Fine, fine what is it. :: steps aside with him ::
(22:26:35) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: lets Blackthorne go and sticks close to Brooke, noting her stress level, quietly :: Brooke: Doing all right?
(22:27:05) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Tips his cane:: Adm: Admiral, sir. Cdore:: Commodore, ma'am. Adm: Many good journeys to you sir. I do not believe I ever had the pleasure before in all my, but it is a pleasure now.
(22:27:10) MED_Ens_DrSlade: ::steps aside with him and pulls a ring from his pocket:: CO: Sir, I wanted to ask your permission before I did it, but i would like to Propose to T'Lira and, if she says yes, Ask admiral Zuriyev as his last offical authority to perform the ceremony
(22:27:48) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: finds the stage and checks to see if there's karaoke ::
(22:27:56) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: finds the wall to be an interesting place to stand as she idly listens to all that's going on around. It appears that one couple is having a rather difficult argument at the moment ::
(22:28:21) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: MED: Doctor, that would be highly inappropriate. This party is about him, not you, and you'd be upstaging if you did that.
(22:28:28) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: looks for a corner out of the way and hopes no one comes over to bother him ::
(22:29:10) Adm_ACZuriyev: ENG: Thank you, Lieutenant. :: Recognizes him :: Take good care of Atlantis.
(22:29:29) Cdor_BrookeZuriyev: :: manages just to get a grateful nod to T'Kirr before smiling to Ilaihr :: ENG: Thank you.
(22:29:38) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Looking shocked at the response:: CO: Of course sir, I would'nt dream of doing such a thing. I apologize that I asked.
(22:30:11) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Places the ring back in his pocket:: CO: Im sorry for bothering you sir, have a good evening
(22:30:27) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: :: nods :: MED: Now try to relax and enjoy.
(22:30:40) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: :: really wants to find the bar now, wow ::
(22:31:33) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Walks back to T'Lira:: SCI: Sorry that I left you for a moment, what do you say we get a drink, synthehol ofcourse
(22:31:49) CAG_Cdr_Harper: ::: a couple hours later as the sun is starting to dip into the Pacific, she pulls the bike up to a bed and breakfast in Big Sur, overlooking the sea on a wooded hillside ::
(22:32:05) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: Adm: May I say, don't let retirement be the end. ::Give a sagely wink and a nod.:: And I shall care for Atlantis as best as she'll let me.
(22:32:09) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: That would be agreeable. :: is still slightly distracted by the arguing couple, but pushes that aside and focuses on the present ::
(22:32:34) Adm_ACZuriyev: ENG: I am told that I may take up fishing, so we shall see how that works out.
(22:33:39) Cdor_BrookeZuriyev: :: can't help but roll her eyes ::
(22:33:47) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: :: idly wonders if they're still teaching etiquette at the Academy as he finds the bar ::
(22:33:52) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: slides off the bike, shaking the stiffness out of her legs ::
(22:34:02) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: Adm:If you ever require anything on your travels sir, remember who to call. ::Bids his dues. Nodding to the Zuriyevs, and gracefully disappears to the bar.::
(22:34:13) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: kills the engine and props up the stand ::
(22:34:29) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Strides to the nearest bar with T'Lira::
(22:35:32) Adm_ACZuriyev: :: looks longingly at the bar as well, hating these situations ::
(22:36:04) Cdor_BrookeZuriyev: :: focuses on Alexi's face for a moment when no one is approaching them ::
(22:36:09) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: pulls off her helmet, sucking in fresh air and looking at the house :: Kate: Well, this looks like a nice place. Amazing view.
(22:36:19) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: :: orders three single-malt Scotches for himself and the Zuriyevs, and a tea for T'Kirr ::
(22:37:11) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: doffs her helmet as well :: Yeah... remote and serene. :: takes a deep breath as she stretches :: And I always enjoy salt air.
(22:37:28) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Decides to mix and match, and orders an Irished-up cup of tea. So he can appear dignified, and get drunk.::
(22:37:43) Adm_ACZuriyev: :: looks back at Brooke :: Good thing most only retire once.
(22:38:17) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: nods agreement :: Kate: I think anyone who doesn't has questionable judgment.
(22:38:42) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: grabs the saddlebags off the bike :: Shall we?
(22:39:36) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Waves at Slade and T'lira.: MED/SCI: Young ones. How are we fairing?
(22:39:55) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Sips his tea.::
(22:40:01) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: :: returns with the drinks, two in each hand, and distributes them ::
(22:40:10) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: fails at finding karaoke but comes away from the bar with something in a glass that's chocolate and syntheholic and sits down in front of the Zuriyev's :: Alexi: Admiral Zuriyev! Congratulations on your retirement! Thank you for all your years of service. :: bows her long neck low ::
(22:40:17) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: decides to opt for tea, as she's never been too much of a fan of anything alcoholic, real or fake :: ENG: I would say well.
(22:40:24) Adm_ACZuriyev: Ian: You are a true friend, sir. :: as he accepts the drink and takes a sip ::
(22:40:50) MED_Ens_DrSlade: ENG: Hello there, and I cant think of anything to complain about other than the uniform :: Smiles::
(22:40:51) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Kate: Lets. :: follows her along the walkway and up the steps, ALMOST too tired to admire the view... ALMOST. ::
(22:41:27) Adm_ACZuriyev: :: smiles as he sees Kuari :: Thank you, Kuari! I am fortunate to have crossed your path across the galaxy.
(22:41:38) Cdor_BrookeZuriyev: :: takes her drink gratefully from Blackthorne and smiles, this time the smile from being a bit enchanted, at Kuari ::
(22:42:07) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: takes the tea from Blackthorne and watches the greetings ::
(22:42:30) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: enters the B&B and checks in, there being no other guests, they get the big room ::
(22:42:30) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Smiles at the pair.:: MED: You must take pride in it doctor. ::Sees an emotional change in them, his grin getting wider.:: SCI: I'm glad we are are well.
(22:42:50) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: <all well>
(22:43:16) SCI_LtJG_TLira: ENG: Although I must admit that I am confused by your usage of "we" in this context.
(22:43:29) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: finds a bar on the pier, orders a Long Island Iced Tea, double and hold the Coke. It's gone in seconds, and he instantly feels that he could probably handle dealing with people. ::
(22:44:37) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: I believe that he just admitted to be doing well! ENG: I too am curious, why are you so cheerful old man?
(22:45:00) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Taps his cane on the floor twice, and sips his tea. Laughing a T'lira's question.::
(22:45:36) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: Ah. That seems to be reasonable.
(22:45:47) CAG_Cdr_Harper: Lexy: We are the only guests. Room.... one.
(22:45:52) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: SCI: You have a healthy glow to you my dear. MED: And I am a crazy old man. That is what we do.
(22:46:17) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: raises her head :: Alexi: Aw, thank you. :: turns her big eyes to Brooke :: I have not met your mate, though!
(22:46:26) MED_Ens_DrSlade: ENG: Truer words havent been spoken :: Raises his glass to ilahir::
(22:46:31) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: MED: I have stumbled upon something that was stolen from me... but that is another story.
(22:46:35) SCI_LtJG_TLira: ENG: A... glow? I was not previously aware that such a thing was possible.
(22:46:57) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: raises her eyebrows :: Kate: Really? In this great big house? :: follows down the hall toward room one ::
(22:47:20) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: My dear I believe our Andorian friend has sensed our little one
(22:47:36) CAG_Cdr_Harper: Lexy: It is apparently the off-season. :: the door unlocks at their approach and opens to the big room, with a large window overlooking the sea ::
(22:47:43) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Sips his tea.::
(22:47:45) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: But a glow? That is not possible.
(22:48:01) Adm_ACZuriyev: Brooke: I suppose I should get this speech thing over with that I am supposed to give.
(22:48:22) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Removes his spectacles, revealing his milky white eyes.:: SCI: It is quite possible my dear.
(22:48:37) MED_Ens_DrSlade: SCI: It is a term that has been used for centuries. meaning that when a female is with child she begins to produce more blood which causes the skin to have a brighter look to some, hence the glow
(22:49:01) SCI_LtJG_TLira: MED: Fascinating. ENG: I have noticed such changes in my appearance recently.
(22:49:27) Cdor_BrookeZuriyev: :: is drawn from Kuari to focus on her husband :: Alexi: Ah, now a good time for that?
(22:49:35) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: stands in the doorway, amazed by the view ::
(22:50:10) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: SCI: It is a quaint expression, but it nonetheless accurate.
(22:50:15) Adm_ACZuriyev: Brooke: As good as any. :: heads up to the podium and a yeoman blows the whistle for attention ::
(22:50:42) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: turns her attention to the podium and the admiral ::
(22:50:54) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: smiles as she enters and puts the saddlebags on the gigantic bed :: What a room!
(22:51:23) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: :: his gaze followed Zuriyev up, takes a sip ::
(22:51:35) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: turns happily... tipsily and stands at attention ::
(22:51:52) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Looking up from his glass to the podium::
(22:51:59) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: rubbernecks with the others around her, watching after Zuriyev ::
(22:52:05) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Rubs his forehead, a migraine setting in, as he watches the podium.::
(22:52:12) Adm_ACZuriyev: :: clears his throat :: Everyone, thank you very much for the - well, absolutely incredible retirement festivities. I am absolutely stunned by all of this.
(22:52:42) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: steps inside and allows the door to close behind her, and bounces onto the bed with a giggle ::
(22:52:43) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: takes a gulp of her chocolate thing ::
(22:53:05) Adm_ACZuriyev: My career has been long and mostly successful and I suppose that it is time to sail off into the sunset on a fishing boat through the Golden Gate.
(22:53:30) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: eyes Lexy, then does likewise ::
(22:53:40) Cdor_BrookeZuriyev: :: wipes a hand over her face again at the mention of fishing ::
(22:55:48) Adm_ACZuriyev: A special message to the crews of my old ships that are present, the Atlantis and the Halsey - take care of them, that is an order.
(22:56:32) Adm_ACZuriyev: But as I step out, the next generation of officers cycles in, and new minds and ideas rise to the forefront.
(22:56:32) CSO_LCdr_Wright: Kate: Ahhh... such a nice bed, too. :: stretches out over the soft bedspread ::
(22:56:43) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Raises his glass and in unison with the entire group says :: AYE
(22:56:48) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: glances at Blackthorne ::
(22:57:05) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: :: eyebrows raise a bit ::
(22:57:27) CAG_Cdr_Harper: :: stretches out as well, after hours of riding, the bed is luxurious ::
(22:57:54) Adm_ACZuriyev: Do your best to steward those fresh ideas and carry us forward into the Federation's future. Thank you all, and, for the last time... dismissed!
(22:58:35) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: :: starts clapping ::
(22:58:53) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Applause::
(22:59:01) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: joins in the clapping, now that he's happy to be at this party ::
(22:59:04) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: gives a polite clapping, as much more would be inappropriate in her mind ::
(22:59:19) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Resting his cane on his arm, claps to the admiral.::
(22:59:59) XO_Capt_TKirr: :: claps politely ::
(23:00:03) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: :: raises his drink and speaks up :: To Admiral A! C! Zuriyev!
(23:00:19) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: wants to shout but doesn't ::
(23:00:19) MED_Ens_DrSlade: :: Raises glass:: Here Here
(23:00:31) SCI_LtJG_TLira: :: lifts her cup of tea in a toast ::
(23:01:15) Adm_ACZuriyev: :: smiles and raises his glass, tipping it to Blackthorne ::
(23:01:21) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM
(23:01:22) SEC_Lt_Kuari: :: mimics everyone else's clapping, unable to make the right sound ::
(23:01:23) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM
(23:01:24) CO_VAdm_Blackthorne: PAUSE SIM
(23:01:34) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: rolls up onto her elbows to look at Kate :: Sooo...
